Membership categories, costs, and registration for clubs21 December 2018
People become a club member of Swim England through an English Club. They do not apply themselves. Your club’s Registration Officer uses the Swim England Online Membership System (OMS) to register members.

There are three main categories of annual club membership. These are Club Train, Club Compete and Club Support. There is an overview of each below. For more detail on these, and temporary and student membership, head to our dedicated members website here.
Club Train membership
This is for individuals who are part of a club and are learning to swim or are swimming at any level within the club network.
It is not for people who compete in open competition in any sport, unless the event has an exemption under Swim England Law or is designated as Low Level Competition.
Club Compete membership
Club Compete is our biggest category as it is for people who want to compete and be part of a structured competitive pathway. It is for your club members who want to compete in competitions not exempted under Swim England law, or designated as Low Level Competition.
Club Support membership
Club Support is for anyone involved in a club who isn’t covered by Club Train or Club Compete, such as volunteers, coaches and teachers. You can find more detail about Club Support on the membership website here.
